Sean Taylor 1983-2007

The Sports Voice has been on a small hiatis as of late, however something has come up that needs to be talked about.

Sean Taylor has long been a favorite here at the Sports Voice. We've loved watching him on the field ever since he was a Dime and Nickel back at the U. Infact, atleast one of us went out during Taylor's rookie year to buy a #36 Washington Jersey (he had since changed his number to 21, which is closer to the 26 he wore in college).

Sadly, Taylor was shot in the leg last night in his Miami home by an armed intruder, who local police are figuring as a burgler. After losing a large amount of blood from the wound, Taylor died this morning at Jackson Memorial Hospital.

Reguardless of how you may have felt about Sean Taylor off the field, he was a Son, a Father, a Brother, and a Teammate.

Unlike some of the news outlets (who only seem to remember the good things the man did) i'm going to tell you, yes Taylor had alot of problems outside of football (and even some attitude problems on the field).

Yes he had alot of issues with anger managment and being smart with money.

And yes he was arguably the best saftey in the NFL.

Sean Taylor will be missed. We here at the Sports Voice know, we won't be able to watch a Redskin game in the same way for a long, long time.
